Part 2 Project 2008

This thesis will explore the distinct views of East and West perspectives, through a number of studies on perception. Understanding the divergence between the east and west will show that their differences lie in their similarities. The two cultures are two halves of a whole, attracted together through the tension in their diversity.

In order to coexist the East and the West, this thesis proposes a host and guest relationship between Canadians and Chinese immigrants. In a transitional housing complex designed to emphasize hostility, the inhabitants will have to work together to arrive at hospitality. It is an architecture where hostility becomes hospitality, where the guest becomes the host. Thus, the divergence of the East and West will be resolved.
